Lots of A-listers nailed down their next big movies this week — Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio each signed on for interesting new films, and one of Hollywood's biggest action stars dropped out of a franchise — and another couple stepped in. Also, a young viral video star got an iconic role in Into the Woods, while Penn Badgley, Miles Teller and more also signed on for their next roles. Start clicking to find out who's starring in what!
Miley Cyrus showed her support for her on-again, off-again fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, when she attended the premiere of his newest movie, Paranoia, in LA last night. The Proenza Schouler-clad singer stuck close to her boyfriend as they walked the red carpet, occasionally breaking away so that Liam could mingle with his co-stars Amber Heard and Harrison Ford, who brought his wife, Calista Flockhart, and daughter, Georgia, to the big bash.
The premiere stop was a change of pace for busy Miley, who has been traveling around the globe to promote her newest single, "We Can't Stop," and her upcoming album, BANGERZ. Meanwhile, Liam has had a full schedule with press duties in both LA and NYC for his latest flick. With such hectic plans, it comes as no surprise that the couple has put their wedding plans on hold. Miley's younger sister, Noah Cyrus, recently said that the couple "are not planning [their wedding] yet." Miley and Liam went through a bit of a rough patch earlier this year when the singer was spotted without her engagement ring. However, it now looks as if the young lovebirds are back on.
Liam Hemsworth shows off his leading-man chops in the trailer for Paranoia, in which he plays Adam, a young man chasing the American dream, only to get sucked into an insidious plot. When he joins a powerful firm as an entry-level employee, his boss (Gary Oldman) preys on his ambition and gives him an assignment that will send him to the top: spying on the head of a rival firm (headed by Harrison Ford). When Adam realises he's in over his head, he faces threats to his life and his family — along with the attention of the FBI.
Though it looks like a generic and predictable espionage thriller, I love seeing Hemsworth centre stage (even if he's not allowed to use his Australian accent). Plus, the supporting cast is impressive enough to give it a boost. Aside from Ford and Oldman, Josh Holloway and Amber Heard also star. Paranoia comes out Aug. 15, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
I hope you haven't grown weary of seeing young adult novels on the big screen, because we've got another one for you. Ender's Game is set in a future where humans are being dominated by an alien race and start training young teens to command their star fleets (it's kind of like kiddie Star Trek). The most promising student is Ender (Asa Butterfield), who enters Battle School and starts learning under the tutelage of a gruff colonel (Harrison Ford).
First of all, I can't believe how much Butterfield has aged since Hugo — his voice is much deeper, and he looks ready to kick some ass in this preview. In addition to that, this film looks pretty awesome. Not only are the visual effects exciting, but I'm also interested in the moral dilemma brought up in the trailer about training kids to be military leaders. Plus, the cast boasts many Oscar nominees (which this trailer is happy to remind you of). The film hits cinemas on Oct. 31, but you can watch the trailer when you keep reading.
Taylor Kitsch, Harrison Ford and Emma Stone are just a handful of the many stars who have already been confirmed for major upcoming films this week. Stone is teaming up with Zach Galifianakis, Johnny Depp's Transcendence gained a lovely lady, and two of our favourite primetime guys signed on for a buddy comedy.

Most of Young Hollywood flocked to LA for the Teen Choice Awards earlier this week, celebrating the pop culture picks of the youthful with vampires (hello, Robert Pattinson!), Harry Potter stars and surfboards. But there were lots of other events that kept other A-listers busy. The stars of Glee were out in force last week for the premiere of Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, which brings their latest tour to the big screen (and remember it’s only in cinemas for two weeks!). Olivia Wilde was joined by her Cowboys and Aliens co-stars Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig for promotional stops in Europe, while Jesse Eisenberg celebrated the premiere of 30 Minutes or Less with Ben Stiller. Lauren Conrad indulged her love of shoes, and Rachel Zoe took a cover girl turn for Hamptons magazine. Catch up with the rest of the week’s celeb pics now!
The Sony lot in Culver City was transformed into a mix of Key West and Havana Cuba on Saturday night for the fifth annual Guys Choice Awards. It's always an unconventional affair and this year was no different, with Cameron Diaz kicking things off in a sexy sheer suit and setting up the evening with a few rules à la Bad Teacher. She came out again later to present Jim Carrey with the Funniest MFer award and he pushed the boundaries with his acceptance speech. Justin Timberlake preached to the crowd about finding the Holy Grail of Hotness winner, his Friends With Benefits co-star Mila Kunis, who defeated Minka Kelly for the crown.
Who needs superheroes when you can watch Harison Ford and Daniel Craig battle extraterrestrials in the old West? The newest trailer for Cowboys & Aliens looks even better than the first, promising more than just explosions and space invaders. In fact, this second preview almost resembles a horror film.
We learn that this isn't the first time the aliens have invaded our turf (in fact, it seems that they may have even taken Daniel Craig's character hostage in the past). As another added bonus, things get steamy between Craig and Olivia Wilde this time around. The added layers in the second trailer make me even more interested in this movie, so check it out for yourself when you read more.
Rachel McAdams arrived in Berlin for yesterday's premiere of Morning Glory, where she matched the carpet in a bold red gown. She was joined on the press line by her co-star Harrison Ford, and the duo stuck together afterward to grab a late dinner at the city's Kaefer restaurant atop the Reichstag. Harrison and Rachel were also side by side this morning when they, appropriate for the movie's theme, did an interview on a morning show. Rachel is back to work after a holiday break with her boyfriend, Michael Sheen, and, hopefully, he was able to get her the one item she really wanted for Christmas.
